Tahoe Ride for Rett Syndrome, June 6, 2010

by Casting 4 A Cure, Inc.

Hello all, thank you so much for your suppoort in 2010 around our Tahoe Ride for Rett Syndrome.  We hit our initial goal of $20,000 for Rett Syndrome research thanks to all our generous donors.

We will be taking a hiatus on the Ride for Rett for 2011, but we have posted another project in Global Giving to help continue to raise funds for the fight against Rett Syndrome.  We will be reinstituting the Ride for Rett in 2012 and will reach out again for your support. 


We continue to strive to help find a cure for Rett Syndrome with additional donations received in the 4th qtr of 2010.  We have finalized our date for the 2011 Ride for Rett Syndrome which will be June 5th, 2011.

We were able to donate $18,500 in 2010 to the International Rett Syndrome Foundation to help with Rett Syndrome research and family support.

Thanks again for your support!




We have continued to receive generous donations from numerous Nike employees to help support our efforts to find a cure for Rett Syndrome. Thanks to all that have donated thus far.

We will begin to start our plans and registration for the 2011 Tahoe Ride for Rett Syndrome in early January 2011 and looking to grow our group by 3-4 riders. Our fundraising goal for 2011 will be $20,000

To date we have raised over $18,000 for The International Rett Syndrome Foundation and the Rocky Mountain Rett Association for research grants and family support.

Thanks you so much for your support!

Hello all, thanks so much for your support of our 2010 Ride for Rett Syndrome. The sun came out on Juen 5th after a long hiatus and Brad Bennett and I rode the 60 utterly beautiful and very challenging miles thruough the Canby hills and valleys. We were so fortunate to have a dry day as i thad been raining for weeks.

We have raised close to $8,000 so foar for Rett Syndrome Research and this moeny will help us fund critical research projects.

We will continue to raise money thru this site and our other events this summer under our Casting 4 A Cure flyfishing tournaments in Steamboat CO and Victor ID.

Our goal is to raise $100,000 for Rett Syndrome Research in 2010.

Thanks so much for your support and we'll be training for next year's ride....Feel free to join us...
